Inspiring, gregarious, engaging … John commands the room

Inspiring, gregarious, engaging ... John commands the room. When hosting a recent Rotary Club evening, I could sit back and relax as he got everyone involved in his fascinating TV News decision making game — making people laugh, while being bang on message. I would invite John to MC any event — he’s at the top of his game.

A great MC because you’d done your homework

You'd done your homework on a complex issue -- and that meant you were a great MC.

Why training needn’t be boring …

Why more hands are likely to go up now at this business in Kent ...


Kristy Adams, Parsons Son & Basley Chartered Surveyors

Fun and informative — I’ll certainly be recommending this as a team building activity.

Becky Feetham, Hopscotch Consulting

I really liked the length and interactivity. Some training starts and ends well but fades in the middle — this didn’t. I loved the five ‘takeaways’ — so easy to remember, so visual — I think will remember them in two weeks’ time without having taken loads of notes.”
Becky Feetham, Hopscotch Consulting


Ian Smallwood, Business East Sussex

I’ve seen lots of training events, but this was different because it was based on reality — what happens in your high pressure, stressful, newsroom environment. You weren’t telling us about it — we were experiencing it for ourselves.
Ian Smallwood, Business East Sussex


Julie Bird, Gary Darby & David Stenning, Employment Workers, Kent County Council

Ten out of ten for originality and holding the audience. You made us think quickly — this was completely non-boring — we bonded as a team — and you helped us see the benefits of pushing ourselves outside the comfort zone.
Julie Bird, Gary Darby & David Stenning, Employment Workers, Kent County Council


Mina O’Brien, Ditzy Media, Eastbourne

This was inspiring. You’ve helped me to be more decisive and stop procrastinating.
Mina O’Brien, Ditzy Media, Eastbourne


Rachel Collins, Impetus Advocacy

You inspired me — I was learning without realising it, learning to take risks, be succinct, not be afraid to say what I think, even if it’s different to what others think or what’s always been done before.
Rachel Collins, Impetus Advocacy


Adam Muirhead, Trust for Developing Communities, Hove

Engaging and stimulating — I’ve realised you shouldn’t be afraid to sometimes let something go.
